Come feast at this table, God’s banquet now is spread,
With bread of life and saving cup our hunger now is fed. God in an Apron
Supper was special that night. There was both a heaviness and a holiness hanging in the air. We couldn’t explain the mood. It was sacred, yet sorrowful. Gathered around that table, eating that solemn, holy meal seemed to us the most important meal we had ever sat down to eat.’
Reading John 13:2-5
They were at supper,
and the devil had already put it into the mind of Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray him.
Jesus knew that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he had come from God and was returning to God.
He got up from the table, removed his outer garment and, taking a towel, wrapped it round his waist.
He then poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel he was wearing
“There are so many feet to wash,”
I keep saying.
“No.” I hear God’s voice resounding through the years.
“There are only My feet. What you do for them, you do for Me.
